I’m this close to putting my beloved/beat up pan of NARS Orgasm out to pasture for the summer and replacing it with Too Faced Cosmetics Who’s Your Poppy Full Bloom Ultra Flush Blush ($19).
More than just a’ight, this peachy pink’s a powder blush hidden gem! — and if you haven’t tried it yet, I hope you will, ’cause I believe it’s the bomb.
It’s as if some intrepid makeup lover at Too Faced HQ took a pan of NARS Orgasm, added a little more pink to it and gave it a softer golden shimmer.
BOOM! Take that. Who’s Your Poppy now, blush!?
Sometimes with NARS Orgasm, I think its pearly golden shimmer takes over my looks. It’s like, dayum, Gina! You got hit by the glitter truck.
Who’s Your Poppy isn’t like that. Instead of kicking down the door with steel-toed boots screaming, “HEY, Y’ALL, LOOK AT MY PORES!” its golden pearl tip-toes through the tulips on ballet slippers. It’s still shimmery…but think brunch shimmer, as opposed to bachelorette party.
The finely milled, pigmented powder doesn’t just look like it’s sitting on top of my skin. I buff one or two layers on my cheeks with a regular blush brush, and I’m good to go, gently shimmering about my day with a peachy pink golden flush.
If you get a chance, give it a try one of these days with a nude lipstick or gloss for a really pretty, girl-next-door flush. Consider Too Faced Mocha Freeze Sweet Shines Gloss, MAC Big Baby Plushglass, Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Candy Shimmer or Dolce & Gabbana Gentle Monica Lipstick.
The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.
If NARS Orgasm is your club blush, then Who’s Your Poppy could be your mid-week lunch date with your best work bud.
Natural with a kick!
Who’s Your Poppy lives in the permanent line, and you can find it at Too Faced counters and online.
My mom calls him “big-boned.” The vet says he’s “a sturdy cat.”
If I had a dime for every time someone used code to describe Tabs…
Today I heard a new phrase, “healthy.” A notary came by today because we had to sign some papers and said, “he’s a very healthy cat,” which I’m pretty sure is code for “your cat is husky.”
Oh, sweet tabby…. All 20 pounds of you.
